On September 27, 1950 I was wounded by a ricochet from a shot fired at me by a sniper in a cave.I healed and returned to duty. But in October, 1950 we were deployed to North Korea, to combat against 200,000 Republic of China Troops. Their only intention was to annihilate the Marines. Our second enemy was the 30 below zero weather.
